A booster seat is essential when children are travelling in the car to protect them from injury in the event of an accident. It is important however, that your child does not go into a booster until they are ready. The age range of use specified on all Australian car booster seats is from approximately 4 years of age. It is important however to realise that this is an approximation. Regardless of age, a child's shoulders must be above the lower height marker on the booster seat before they are safe to use it. This may mean that tall children younger than 4 years old are safe to use a booster seat and that short children older than 4 years old are not. There are different types of booster seats around varying in style and colour. One popular booster seat is lighter than 2kg which means an anchor point doesn't have to be used and the seat can be taken in and out of the car with ease. this particular booster seat folds neatly in half and can be stored in the car ready for when it is needed to be used. It is a great product for grandparents.
